unlocking NEF file

Chris Autio , Jun 04, 2008; 05:11 p.m.

Sorry I can't find this answer in archives, though I have unlocked a jpg and tiff files. I simply want to trash it to get it off my desktop. How do I unlock NEF files? I can open them up in Photoshop, go to info, but am unable to make any changes to the file. Thank you. Chris

The following program may help you if I understand your issue correctly. http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker

You can`t r click, then pick delete. It then is off the desktop. Eliminate the original file the usual way.

Sorry I have a Mac! ...bummer. Anyway, maybe someone can shed some light on this lightroom problem.

Try this: highlight the file, then choose File/Get info and turn off the locked Check box. Then you should be able to trash the file.

Thank ye all: I didn't even know I had a rt click on this new mouse. Then I could GET INFO. etc...

The fastest way is hold down the Option key as you "Empty Trash".
